The long-running festival takes place in Bardstown, KY, each year to celebrate the history of distilling America’s native spirit during National Bourbon Heritage Month. VIP packages sold out within days, the organizers say, but general admission tickets are still available. These include access to a number of events, such as conversations with industry leaders and cocktail classes, the annual World Championship Bourbon Barrel Relay Race, and — new this year — direct sampling opportunities from dozens of popular bourbon brands.
“Over the past year, we’ve completely revamped the Kentucky Bourbon Festival to provide expanded opportunities to interact with the nation’s top bourbon brands,” says David Mandell, chairman of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. “We could not be more excited to unveil our new format to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the festival.”
Tickets are limited to ensure a safe for everyone this fall, as the world continues to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. Tickets are available at kybourbonfestival.com.
